This is part of our FuzzPup range of circuits designed for 1590A builds. Please read the general build doc available here and ensure you're happy with what's involved. They're not especially difficult, but working in a confined space can be fiddly. Take heed.
Of course there's nothing stopping you using these PCBs for 'standard' builds. They're Direct Connect compatible.
If you like your fuzz raw, splattery and face-meltingly intense this one's for you.
Two different flavours can be built - standard (if that word even applies to this fuzz), and vintage, which has a pronounced octave-up. The only difference between the two builds is reversing a transistor.
In either guise your amp will feel like its been on the wrong end of a red hot poker.
We've included pads so you can easily add a switch for 'chaos' mode in either build, which makes a real mess of things in a good way. No enclosure option available for that though - you'll have to buy a suitable SPST switch and fit it in where you can. Shouldn't be hard, but positioning is down to your personal taste.
Caution: This is not a clean, quiet effect. It's a beast, and as such has noisy fangs..
Partial kit: PCB, all board-mounted components, pots.
Full kit: As above, plus footswitch and appropriate daughterboard/components for your selected bypass type (see Downloads section for details of those), jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, hook-up wire, LED.
Enclosure (pre-drilled) is only available with full kits, and will not take a battery. Knobs are not included.
Builds are only available with full kits including enclosures. Please choose appropriate knobs.
Supplied with 9mm pots (round shaft)
PCB size: 25 x 33mm
Knobs required: 2
Direct-Connect compatible (6-way)
